Mexico is a popular tourist destination that attracts millions of visitors each year, notably during the summer season. This country boasts of beautiful cities one of which is Cancun.
Cancun is situated on the southeastern part of Mexico off the Caribbean sea. It is home to some of the world’s most amazing white sand beaches.
One of the major factors why this place is frequented by tourists is its tropical climate. But although it may be warm there, the sea breeze makes the temperature more moderate and thereby bearable. As the city enjoys much sunshine throughout the year, people from the different parts of the world often choose to vacation here.
While in Cancun, visitors can check out various interesting places not found anywhere else. One is the underwater art museum known as MUSA in the National Marine Park. This tourist spot created by English sculptor by Jason deCaires Taylor features life-size sculptures. They’re not there merely as art works but they serve as a reef structure where marine creatures can live.
For families with children, interesting places worth visiting are the Dolphin Discovery in Isla Mujeres, Interactive Cancun Museum, Crococun Zoo, Mayan Ruins and Wet n Wild. Kids will also love the Captain Hook Pirates of the Caribbean dinner show and cruise on the replica of the Spanish galleon.
The powdery white sand beaches are not to be missed. From Punta Cancun to Punta Nizuc, the beaches stretch up to 11 kilometers. Here, people can go sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming and do other watersports.
Accommodation is very accessible as Cancun hotels are just across the beach situated in a long strip. There are more than a hundred hotels in place ranging from the budget friendly to the most luxurious types. Before you book, however, it’s recommended to do some comparison of rates first to ensure you get the best value for your money.
